Black-necked Stilts - Photo Shoot

Seen along the Bailey Tract from March through July.

The Black-necked Stilt breeds and winters in a wide variety of wet habitats. I saw them breed here last summer - my first time watching them and it was very rewarding. Through the challenge of building a nest along alligator habitat, a pair of chicks made it before flying back south for their fall and winter stay.

Seen along the Causeway - not its usual spot.
